Brady will be write-in commission candidate
June 23, 2022
Former Wahkiakum County Commissioner Blair Brady announced Tuesday he has filed to run as a write-in candidate for the District 3 seat on the county board of commissioners.
Incumbent Commissioner Gene Strong filed for re-election to the position in May.
Both are running as independents.
Brady had served approximately 3 1/2 terms of office. He lost the 2018 election by two votes to Strong, who ran as a write-in candidate that year.
Brady said that to qualify for the November general election ballot, he will need to draw at least 11 votes in the July primary election.
Brady said he's running again because people have encouraged him to do so and that he enjoyed the work during his terms of office.
"I feel I have something to benefit the county," he said. "I build relationships because that's the way you get things done."
